Surrounded by the United Arab Emirates, this exclave of Oman in the Musandam Peninsula features dramatic landscape of craggy mountains at the edge of the gulf. Oman’s capital, Muscat, is a five-hour drive south, with a huge section of the UAE in between. While much of the Musandam Peninsula remains undeveloped, eco-luxury brand Six Senses built a nature-lover’s retreat here, just a two-hour drive from the Dubai International airport.
